REVIEW: 8087 TIE Defender
Posted 17 December 2009 - 05:36 PM
Reminds me very much of a lot of the fan made starships you see for Star Trek, just overly designed and silly looking.
Still, if you are a fan of it, and it seems many people are, then I'm sure it'd be a fun set.
And I do really love the new pilot mold.

Hummm, well, it's Star Wars. It does not seems more "unreal" to me than the standard TIE fighter, or the Tantive IV... Overall, I like the set, overpriced for sure, but I think that it can be easlily converted in a more standard TIE Interceptor... And the new pilot rocks !
No offense Penitent !

I think the design is really accurate. Back in the days (1994) I loved flying it in the PC game "TIE Fighter" as Maarek Stele... those were the good ol' days Maybe TLC will do an Assault Gunboat next
Although the set is a bit pricy it's a no-brainer for me. I love the new helmet.

You're going to be building six of these however each of them doesn't take long and they don't look that bad when they're completed. These take up all the part that are provided in bag '2'
Parts 7/10 (A limited selection of parts.)
Could you please confirm if the parts connecting the wings to the cockpit are new?
I mean these ones:

To all the Assault Gunboat/Tie Fighter (game) fans, I wonder if we should petition Lego to give us one next year?
